to former u.n. ambassador john bolton. he will be here in "america's newsroom" just a few minutes away. we'll ask him what he believes she should be asked this morning by the senators. that is coming up. >>> there are some new concerns today that president obama and republicans may not be able to strike a deal that would avoid that potentially devastating fiscal cliff that is looming over the u.s. economy right now. the president is meeting with small business owners at the white house today. he had a series of meetings with different business leaders over the last week. despite the warnings that the talks are stalling on capitol hill stuart varney joins me now, host of "varney & company" on fox business network. >> good morning, martha. bill:. martha: what are you hearing how this is going? >> it is impasse basically. the republicans said yesterday they accommodated the democrats they will agree to get more money from wealthy people from higher taxes but mitch mcconnell, senate republican leader, he says there has been no similar compromise from the democrats or the president. he says the
with pulitzer prize-winning journalist your e miller, former ambassador to the united nations, john bolton , middle east affairs analyst -- doctor wally to paris . the president also withheld judgment about the federal investigation that cost patraeus his job but tonight national security was compromised. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had an impact on our national security. lou: concerning questions on whether the petraeus story should have come up before the presidential election, president obama said the fbi has its own protocols on how they proceed. for more on all of this, the "a-team". let me start with you. the idea that susan rice somehow comes across in the president's statements today as being a puppet without a mind of her own or any indivial responsibility as an envoy of the presidentor representatives of the u.s. government. >> this is a woman who clearly would like to replace secretary of state hillary clinton in that job. no shrinking. she was perfectly able to defend herself. i'm
of the attack that's been shared with congress as of this date. so i remember the john bolton episode pretty well. our democratic friends felt like john bolton didn't have the information needed to make an informed decision about ambassador bolton's qualification. john bolton to be ambassador, and democrats dug in their heels saying we're not going to vote, we're not going to consider this nomination until we get basic answers to our concerns. the concerns i have are greater today than they were before and we're not even close to getting the basic answers. >> can you support her -- >> i have many more questions that need to be answered. >> and so after meeting with susan rice who is presumed the front runner and expected to be nominated, perhaps, for the secretary of state position, no progress on the part of those three republican senators. senator mccain saying he's significantly troubled by the answers, senator graham, more disturbed now than i was before and senator kelly ayotte also talking about being more troubled today than she was before this meeting. let me bring back rick nolan an
this and the abrupt resignation of general director david petraeus. john bolton and jack keen. gentlemen, thank you both very much for being here this evening. general, let me start with you in this tragic and surprising news about general petraeus and his abrupt resignation. what is your sense of the implications for the nation and the really tragic end to what has been a stellar military career? >> just let me say on a personal note, liz, i know dave petraeus very well and his family. it is such a sense of loss and sympathy for the amount of pain that they are in. i love this family and him as well. it's a personal loss for me. but it's also a loss for the country. this is the most accomplished general officer in generation, comparable to the legends of world war ii. he didn't fight a war as big as they did. but we were definitely losing -- most people don't understand how tremendous it was that he began to turn the war around in afghanistan as well. no general officer has been offered two wars to turn around except macarthur, and he failed miserably in the second one. he is a consummate public s

. the violence increes fears of fullout israeli ground assault. we'll have much more with ambassador john bolton a little later in the show. gregg: and president obama is heading to new york city today to tour the most sandy-ravaged areas. the president expected to meet with affected families and first-responders. molly henneberg live at the white house with more on that. molly, what is the message behind the president's visit? >> reporter: hi, gregg. president obama has been saying that the federal government is making a difference in the storm response in new york and new jersey. this is his second visit to see sandy-ravaged areas. you may remember on october 31st he went to see new jersey. today he is going to parts of new york city. he will talk to people there, talk to first-responders. here's what the president said yesterday about his administration's response to superstorm sandy. >> people are still going through a really tough time. the response hasn't been perfect but it's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it. >> reporter: be
to make about john bolton. democrats dug in their heels and a they were not going to consider the nomination until they would get basic answers to their concerns. the concerns i have far greater today there and they were before and we are not even close to getting a basic cancer. >> i have many more questions that need answering. >> that was about 10 minutes ago after meeting with u.n. ambassador susan rice, mentioned as a possible replacement for outgoing secretary of state, hillary clinton. coming up, more discussion on the so-called fiscal cliff this timeless and a majority with dick durbin at the center for american progress in washington. we will have that live. up until then, part of this morning's "washington journal." host: we want to welcome jack gerard, ceo of the american petroleum institute. let us go back to campaign 2012. the american patroleum institute spent about $858,000 on the campaign cycle. total contribution to pac's over $650,000. and contributions to candidates, $217,000. given that you spent a lot on mitt romney's bid, how you think this will impact yo
in august. so did the white house know, and when? ambassador john bolton is on deck. >>> and we've lost the america that president reagan used to describe. a lot of folks are asking the question. the last election sliced and diced america into voter groups pitted against each other, so the question is now whether the shining city on a hill is hopelessly divideed. michael reagan joins us ahead. >> the '90s, and some things have changed. younger parents aren't sure that an unambivalent appreciation of america is the right thing to teach modern children. and as for those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. our spirit is back, but we haven't reinstitutionalized it. we've got to do a better job of getting across that america is freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise and freedom is special and rare. shannon: the timing of general david petraeus resigning from the cia is raising questions as its comes just before he was to testify on libya. the stunning revelation. war hero general david petraeus forced from his cia p
investigation. you cannot make it up, can you? john bolton joins us now from houston. what are they doing? i want to ask the obvious. >> that is beyond me. i really cannot understand what is happening. it is interesting that a number of generals are getting thrown under the bus. it is not like it is something serious like community organizers. dagen: in terms of, what is the most critical thing out of this scandal? the fact that the focus is now off of benghazi? we can go through the timeline of who knew what and when in the administration and various forms of government, but is it the fact that our focus has completely shifted away from what happened in libya? >> well, yes, but i think the two are related. the most important fact here that has been resorted to by "wall street journal" and fox is that attorney general eric holder knew of the petraeus situation in the late summer. it is inconceivable to me, and i speak as an alumnus of the department, inconceivable to me, that if one of them had heard about a comparable circumstance that he would not have talked to the president almost immedi
believe that there a cover up . i agree with what ambassador john bolton said. he think is it part of the vision they have and the ideology of the obama administration that has blinded them from the very real threats that consulate in benghazi was facing or that any americans serving over seas is facing. not only have the senators sent 7 letters requesting information from the white house they have yet to receive. i in my capacity have sent letter after letter to administration officials asking for the documents just like i am asking for the classified document that fox news has and time and time again, we are left with a closinged and classified briefing. this is an administration that doesn't want to tell the truth to the american public and don't want to do it in a open setting. we are callog the administration to come cleann and come and appear before our committee on foreign affairs and explain about this document. when they received the classified cable, saying that the benghazi consulate was under siege, that the deteriorating situation is more violent every day, and that in

to the president's picks. i voted for kagan and sotomayor. senator obama voted gaps john bolton, alito and john roberts. he had a very high bar for confirmation. i have a very low bar. i'm going to listen to what susan rice has to say, put her entire record in context. but i'm not going to give her a plus for passing on a narrative that was misleading to the american people, and whether she knew it was misleading or not. >> you won't filibuster her appointment? >> i'm going to wait to see what the state department has to say, but i'm very disappointed in susan rice, somebody who knew nothing about benghazi, telling a story that was disconnected from reality that did make the president look good at a time when quite frankly the narrative should have been challenged, not reinforced, that al qaeda was dismantled. that's what they wanted us to believe, that al qaeda was dismantled, and benghazi was exhibit a that that storyline was not working and was untrue. >> let me turn to the issue of david petraeus and his resignation, because of his affair. he's been central to this benghazi testimony. but t
. the claim has not been verified. john bolton is here. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: first, your overall thought about what transpired on capitol hill, in terms of the release behind closed doors today? >> well, i think the most interesting testimony that has leaked out -- do i have faith the rest of it will leak out in due course, is that the director of national intelligence and the acting cia director would not say where the talking points that susan rice used on those famous five sunday shows came from. so the notion that somehow or another, this was all supplied to her by the intelligence community, i think is now in question. the real is did the white house write the talking points to suit their ideology, to suit their political imperatives, where did all of that come from? and that, i think, is going to be the focus of a lot of the inquiry with director petraeus tomorrow. >> greta: one of the things that is curious to me, and i am total oat outside, but having tried cases. have you to keep secret. some things on capitol hill have to be secret because it's classified.
does this scandal go? what is the meaning of all of it and what should we know about it? john bolton joins me now, former ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning, martha, glad to be with you. >> what do you think? >> i think there is an amazing difference between what happens after november 6th and our election and what happened before it. as you were asking before how is it that the allen investigation is treated so much differently than the petraeus investigation, a lot of facts we don't know, but certainly this is post november the 6th and whatever the political consequences, they are very attenuated for the president. i think the real issue of course we need to go back to ultimately is benghazi and what happened on september the 11th. but i think also this question of how politicized our national security has become under the obama administration and the effort to push everything past november the 6th really now is something that congress and other political leaders need to focus on. martha: i want to ask you about all these emails an
's nomination for secretary of state john bolton, what republicans are using that. >> exactly. another one who had a reputation for being an aggressive bulldog too. history repeats itself, i guess. >>> moving on to other news this morning, tampa socialite jill kelley, of course, caught up in the big petraeus sex scandal, well, now she's fighting back. attorneys hired by kelley are going after a new york man who claimed kelley tried to use her connection to former cia director david petraeus to broker a deal with the south korean government. this morning's "the new york times" reports that the investigation into e-mails between kelley and general john allen is focused on only 70 messages of the thousands that were allegedly exchanged. >>> we may hear from the army private charged with the biggest security breach in u.s. history. bradley manning accused of spilling secrets to wikileaks will, testify at a pretrial hearing as early as tomorrow. manning faces possible life imprisonment if convicted of aiding the enemy. the most serious of the 22 charges against him. >>> with the recovery costs from
john bolton who has worked for years to make sure this doesn't happen on what it all means, next. jon: republicans say they are willing to show some willingness to come proceed myself on taxes in a grand bargain to help the nation avoid falling off the fiscal cliff. senate democrats, though, are refusing to negotiate taking a hard line against cuts to entitlements like medicare and social security benefits. so where does this all leave us? we heard the president weighing in on it moments ago. let's talk about it with bob cusack, managing editor of the hill. is either side bulging or blinking right now, bob? >> well, if any side is drinking right now it's the republican side because they are trying to wrestle with what they should give up on on taxes, whether that is increasing tax rates or withholdings. democrats, fresh off the election, using that political capital, they are seeing more and more is off the table. in 2011 the president said everything should be on the table, that included entitlement reform. now democrats are saying, social security we shouldn't mess with, these what
those same questions. we'll see how far that goes and how far up it goes. john bolton always good to talk to you. bill: who is jill kelly. this is what we know. 37 years old there from a lebanese family immigrated in president late 70s. her and her husband, a well-known surgeon moved to "tampa two" years ago. she works as an unpaid socially aeu son at an air force base in tam path. the two have hosted gatherings for military officers, some bases in the area and apparently they have been friends with general petraeus and his wife holly for five years. she told a friend that she started receiving harassing emails from paula broadwell this past may. and that's when we are told the f.b.i. started its own investigation. martha: she had no idea that this would lead back to petraeus and what would happen to him. president obama is beginning the new push of his plan to hike taxes on the wealthy in talks this week with business leaders. several ceo's will meet with the president at the white house. many of part of fix the debt campaign with deep washington ties. labor leaders will meet wi
. i'm joined by john bolton. former ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. what do you think about that. >> when i first heard that story i thought i must be reading something from the onion, or mad magazine, and to be honest i still don't believe it. i don't believe even the obama administration would send valerie jarrett to negotiate with the iranians. not that i put it past them, i just find it very hard to believe. martha: apparently she was born in iran to american parents, her father worked in a hospital there. could that be a reason to, you know, sort of think that she might be a person that would be able to sort of bridge a relationship there, or at least in a very initial kind of informal way start to have some discussions or make arrangements for further, higher level discussions? >> well, my understanding is she left when she was five. unless she is a very precocious lady i don't think her experiences between age zero and age five qualify her to negotiate with the iranians. moreover, it is presidential malpractice to put what by all accounts is one of the pre
. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit more remote although they could have an impact depending on what else comes out about perhaps breaches of security of documents and things given to the lady the general is having his affair with. jenna:
on john bolton, his ambassador to the united nations? [laughter] >> right. discrimination against men with moustaches. [laughter] it is so absurd, and the president gets away with it, frankly, because we let him get away with it. there was ed henry of fox news, a couple other people trying to ask some hard questions, but he just swept them aside, and that format is death for getting to the bottom of an affair. that's why we really do need to know in detail, either a select committee or some other venue, what the administration has said about what happened in benghazi that night, whether or not they were attempting to mislead the american people about what happened to make their re-election more likely. i mean, these are questions that are not going to go away even though the administration would like them to go away. jon: yeah. because if susan rice wasn't connected at all to the benghazi incident, why did they put her on the sunday morning shows? >> right. that's an obvious question. [laughter] it's such an obvious question. and, look, i also don't understand why the media -- if i wa
that out. but again, that has to be pursued. megyn: joining me now, ambassador john bolton. former u.s. ambassador to the united nations. that full interview is going to air today at 2:30 p.m. your thoughts to peter king's statements right there? >> i think he has put his finger on the key issue. i think that general petraeus and his testimony today has put this right on the doorstep. i don't think there's any doubt. at least there is a working hypothesis. maybe not a firm conclusion, that the only entity in washington that believes in the demonstration was the white house. general david petraeus said that he knew within 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. he said that he was trying to convey that position in his congressional testimony of september 14. he apparently didn't. but the key point is he thought that he was being consistent. somehow between then and when white house spokesman jay carney spoke, susan rice goes on television on the 16, it goes 180 degrees away from the notion of a terrorist attack towards the demonstration. in an interagency practice, let me just say th
the place, judges, republicans, who have been on hold. now when lindsey graham mentioned was john bolton and that was a clear warning because john bolton, as you know, was not confirmed for u.n. a.m. b ambassador and was a recess appointee. there's no way the president is going to nominate as secretary of state as a recess appointee. you just cannot with credibility lead diplomacy around the world. this week we'll have a debate -- tomorrow there's a debate in the general assembly of the united nations on palestinian state hood. it is symbolic but now france is going along with the rest of the general assembly. the united states and israel and a few others will stand alone against this symbolic gesture. it's considered a very important move by the weakened fatah branch of the palestinians after what's happened with fgaza and hamas. real things at stake here. and susan rice has to stand up there and represent the united states and there's got to be a lot of weakening of her position. >>> coming up next, "the last lion." a definitive biography on winston churchill 20 years in the making was
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
